Back in the days before children came along, we used to enjoy days out and about each weekend visiting new places and discovering new areas. We’d heard of a pretty little village in South Devon called Cockington, and decided to try it out one weekend. The quaint little streets are car free to visitors, you have to park in a carpark just outside, then walk through the narrow streets. There are horse drawn carriages if you wish to take a ride through the village to view the picturesque thatched cottages and stunning scenery.
Cockington Court is at the heart of the village, a historic manor house with over twenty craft studios, tea rooms, the Walled Art Garden, a Tudor rose garden, contemporary art gallery and a popular children’s play area. It was the Tudor rose garden for me that was absolutely stunning. It was a beautiful place to walk around, with a romantic feel to it. You can walk hand in hand around the walled garden, sit on the benches in the peace and quiet and take in the beautiful smell of fresh roses that fills the air.
If you are ever in the South Devon area, I’d definitely recommend a visit to Cockington for a romantic stroll followed by a sumptious cream tea in one of the many tea rooms. Why not check out Coast and Country Cottages for somewhere to stay?
